What pest eats the leaves of the photinia red tip?

There are several it could be, from deer and rodents to slugs to beetles. What kind of damage are you seeing on the leaves? Are they being chewed off entirely, leaves and twigs (deer), or are you seeing small sections of the leaf chewed with chewing damage on the branches (rodents), or are their irregular holes in the inside of the leaves (slugs), or is it on the edges of the leaves (beetles)?
Mostly the edges of the leaves, but whatever it is it is eating most of the leaf, but I can't find anything around them and as cold as it has been I know the grasshoppers aren't out yet. I am in New Mexico and the rest of the plants don't seem to getting any damage to them, only the Photinia.
